Mayim Bialik Says Big Bang Theory’s Journey Was Bittersweet:
Recently, the 44-year-old actress spoke to Metro.co.uk on Zoom. She talked about her presence on the show. She recalled the finale episode of the popular sitcom.
Mayim aka Amy said, “The whole cast, we kind of talked about it together. But I think the reality of it ending took a long time for it to really settle in. What felt the strangest wasn’t when we finished filming in the spring, it was in the fall when we would have been going back to work”.
Later, she added, that shooting the last episode was a very emotional experience for her and the rest of the cast. “There was a lot of conversation about do we film it in front of a live audience. Or, do we film it just us so we have that moment, just us? Kaley Cuoco, in particular, would share on social media what we were all experiencing, and it was very surreal”.
Further, Amy revealed why the journey was bittersweet. She said “It’s very surreal to be a part of a job for 10 years, which in any climate I think is really an accomplishment, but we were together not only as cast members but as a presence on the television. It’s kind of like a double identity which makes it even more complicated and beautiful.”
